    This is an emergency to me

    In fact, what often appears to be a piece of worthless old junk may very well be quite valuable. ( For instance), people often sell old record albums, bottles and books for pennies only to see them resold for tens or hundreds of dollars as parts of large collections.


    Above is a question from my final exam.
    Can I put "Nevertheless" instead of "For instance" without any logical error?

    Thank you very mach in advance.

    “For instance” is fine and serves as an appropriate continuation of the previous sentence. “Nevertheless” which means: in spite of that will be illogical.
